Project description

Patagonian fjord sediments contain a unique record of past changes in precipitation and glacier variability. The goal of this project is to analyze the geochemical composition of sediment transported by Patagonian rivers in order to constrain the processes that control the geochemistry of the sediment deposited in the Patagonian fjords
